Summer decor is slowly going up around here and I’m not mad about it. We have had some of the best weather around here and we are soaking up every second as June can sometimes bring back the rain for a bit. A few weeks ago I updated our shiplap gallery wall with a new set of tropical printables and that set the tone my summer decor this year. Today, I’m joining a group of bloggers and we are sharing brand new summer crafts on each of our blogs. I put together some cute and neutral DIY Plant Pots for our entry way.
DIY Plant Pots For Summer
Supplies For DIY Plant Pots
- Black Pots (these are chalkboard pots)
- White Acrylic Paint with Fine Tip Brush
- BBQ Wood Chips
- Hot Glue Gun
- Tropical Plants
The black ones are the easiest little things and only take about 5 minutes to make. Just make a few crosses in a pattern around the pot. I did two coats of paint on some crosses to help fill in those lines.
The second DIY Pot is the wood chip pot! I was originally trying to make it look like an abstract pineapple pot but I’m not sure how that turned out? When working with tougher projects like this, I love using the Gorilla Glue Hot Glue Sticks, they are much stronger than your standard glue sticks. I glued my first layer of wood chips around the base. I specifically picked out the flatter pieces. For the second layer, I placed the wood chips up a bit higher and kept filling in the places.
Indoor Planter Ideas
These little pots are simple to make, they can be tweaked for your personal style and work year round! But these pots make great neutral summer decor with the wood chip pot and tropical plants.
